How "independent" are you?
We celebrated our "independence" yesterday, and it got me thinking, "Am I really independent? Do I WANT to be independent?"
Think about it, what kinds of things are you dependent on?
- Money? A job?
- A friend? Family member? A boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse?
Don't get me wrong, I love celebrating the Fourth of July!
But maybe it's time I get honest and celebrate "Dependence Day!" I NEED friends! I NEED family! I NEED relationships! And most of all, I NEED a relationship with God! Without Him, there is no "color" in life...no joy. There is no hope or enjoyment of other blessings. If I don't have a relationship with Him, I have nothing!
I think I'm going to declare EVERY Sunday "Dependence Day!" What do you say...wanna do it with me?
I love this verse...
Lam 3:24 Deep in my heart I say, "The LORD is all I need; I can depend on him!" (CEV)
